Locking Trochanter Stabilizing Plate for DHS Specification
Locking Trochanter Stabilizing Plate for DHS has been designed as an extension to the DHS plate and serves the following functions:
It limits diaphyseal medialisation by fastening onto the greater trochanter.
It enables the insertion of an additional cranial and parallel antirotation screw, which acts as a superolateral tension band. When used, the atirotation screw imposes a slightly more caudal positioning of the DHS screw compared to the standard technique.
It allows for an additional proximal internal fixation of the greater trochanter with locking head screws.
It maintains the dynamization capacity of the DHS.
Advantages of angular stability
Locked angle-stable screws can be fixed monocortically, even in soft bone without any risk of screw loosening. Due to the high stability of the screws in the plate, the greater trochanter can be secured as a functional entity without using cerclage wires. Fix the plate over or through the gluteus medius muscle without compressing the bone. As an internal fixator, the plate preserves bone vascularity.
Additional features of Locking Trochanter Stabilizing Plate for DHS
Locking Trochanter Stabilization Plate extends the DHS Plate and Locking DHS Plate constructs to help stabilize the greater trochanter and to facilitate insertion of an anti-rotation screw into the femoral head.
Limits medialization: Provides buttress support to prevent the fracture from medializing and dropping into valgus.
Prevents rotation: 6.5 mm/7.3 mm cannulated screws can be placed through the plate, cranially and parallel to the DHS Lag Screw. By putting the anti-rotation screw through the plate, the plate prevents submersion of the screw head into osteopenic bone.
Instead of a cerclage, use locking head screws to achieve an additional proximal internal fixation (cerclage is still possible).
Only one size is required (plate can be cut).
It is easy to bend the plate and adapt it to the individual anatomical conditions.
Plates available in both Titanium and Stainless steel.
